Thematic Seminar

The Thematic Seminar , hold by Bernard Jimenez, the very known thematic exhibitor and the Secretary of the Jury at WSC ISRAEL 2018 was a great success.

For the 1st time ever, a jury training course have been conducted by FIP at Jerusalem 3 days before the WSC  ISRAEL2018 exhibition.

To save expenses to participants, to the O.C. and to FIP – only jury members of the exhibition (or Israeli jurors) were invited.  14 accepted (and paid the extra hotel rooms costs).

After a very intensive and serious course with professional trainers (also chairmen of TR and PH FIP committees)- they received their certificates and jury fellow pins at the PALMARES ceremony.
